This year, we will be doing our best to give Renderosity members a taste of what the big convention is all about. We will be running around collecting information, talking to people and then bringing you all the latest gossip and 'news' from the show. We also invite those of you who are coming to Siggraph to post your own experiences and impressions in our Siggraph Diaries Thread in the Convention Forum for everyone else to share (and be jealous over *chuckle*). Stay tuned for the first installment which will happen right after we visit our first Special Session, Yoda and Beyond: Creating the Digital Cast of "Star Wars, Episode II". In addition, we will be attending the Birds of a Feather --Non-Photorealistic Rendering Session, and hope to bring you exciting news about revolutionary techniques in animation / rendering which will affect not only what you see in films, but also the options you will have in your own work!
